Uniforms/specific dress codes

Where organisations provide a uniform or require a specific dress code,they should try to avoid including item that may conflict with the requirements of some religions.

Some religions, for example, require women to dress modestly. By adopting a flexible approach and consulting with staff affected by the dress code, it is possible to agree a code that meets the needs of the business and of individual employees.

Where it is practical and safe to do so, staff may welcome the chance to wear clothing consistent with their religion.
